Petroleum Sites Remedial System Design, Alameda Point

Naval Air Station (NAS) Alameda, CA

The Navy's Alameda Point Petroleum Program is separate from the Navy's Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) Program at Alameda Point. The San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board is the regulatory agency with oversight of the Petroleum Program. Although the Petroleum and CERCLA programs are independent, coordination between the programs is necessary. GCE was required to communicate plans, activities, and findings with the Navy, other Navy contractors, City of Alameda, their representatives, and their developers and developer's representatives, per Navy direction, accordingly.

The objective of this project was to prepare remedial system design documents for three petroleum program sites at Alameda Point, California: Building 530, CAA 4A, and CAA 4B. GCE reviewed the Petroleum Corrective Action Plans (PCAPs) for the sites and prepared a unique, site-specific remedial design for each site. The designs were based on the selected alternatives presented in the PCAPs.

The design documents provided a complete engineered design of the remedial systems to be implemented (i.e., plans and specifications) as described in the PCAPs and included complete design specifications and drawings/schematics, including any relevant figures and/or site system engineering layouts (e.g., process flow diagram, piping and instrumentation diagrams, etc.). Preliminary design plans (65% complete) presented the conceptual design of the selected remedy. Final design plans (100%) provided specifications in sufficient detail so that contractors could bid (unit basis) on the construction, implementation, and operation of the remedial systems, and included a detailed schedule for construction and field implementation of the selected remedies.
